Yes, "Beast from Haunted Cave" is here, but the biggest file I could find was only like 290 MB. If you got a bigger file with better resolution, by all means, put it up.

"Maria Marten, or The Murder in the Red Barn" is a British film, and thus subject to URAA. I was going to ask whether it was possible that this film was denied copyright restoration/delayed-copyright based upon early publication in the U.S., but imdb shows a U.S. release date of 18 August 1936, which is at least 7 1/2 months after supposed British release of 1935.

List has been altered reflecting your concerns. I tend not to trust IMDB on the issue of release dates. I generally look to better researched and more reliable sources for this information.

Granted, imdb stinks for much of its info. I prefer tcmdb, but it wasn't loading when I tried it. In any event, long delays for the American release (if any) of a non-blockbuster British picture was commonplace in the 1930s, so the release gap suggested here fits the pattern of the time.

(Should anyone find evidence that the American publication (not necessarily release) preceded the British release (release is publication in Britain) or that the American publication occurred within 30 days of the British, then American copyright registration and renewal becomes a must, not fixable by URAA.)
